    5         (18) FACILITIES.—
    6         (e) If a district school board facility or property is
    7  available because it is surplus, marked for disposal, or
    8  otherwise unused, it shall be provided for a charter school’s
    9  use on the same basis as it is made available to other public
   10  schools in the district. A charter school that occupies the
   11  property of a public school must pay the per-square-foot rate
   12  and utilities rate in accordance with the school district’s
   13  facility lease agreement. The charter school shall pay such
   14  amount as monthly rent to the district school board to reduce
   15  the bonds that are owed by the school district. A charter school
   16  receiving property from the school district may not sell or
   17  dispose of such property without written permission of the
   18  school district. Similarly, for an existing public school
   19  converting to charter status, no rental or leasing fee for the
   20  existing facility or for the property normally inventoried to
   21  the conversion school may be charged by the district school
   22  board to the parents and teachers organizing the charter school.
   23  The charter school shall agree to reasonable maintenance
   24  provisions in order to maintain the facility in a manner similar
   25  to district school board standards. The Public Education Capital
   26  Outlay maintenance funds or any other maintenance funds
   27  generated by the facility operated as a conversion school shall
   28  remain with the conversion school.
